    Cheers matey. Whenever I went to London for pics I usually walked around the london eye part of town. Most of the pics I took ended up black and white though, not much colour in london.

    First picture technically the City of Westminster not London, but hey :p

    Thought I'd be a douche. But these are some pretty nice snaps, what camera/lens are you using?

    I think I see what you were trying for, so I'll be honest and give some feed back.
    I love the yellow in the monochrome. The lack of straightening makes me want to pull hairs.

    This could use cropping/cloning on the light on the right, and straightening.

    I love doors. Contrast might make the door pop more and some straightening. I personally would add a slight vignette to draw the eye to the center, but that's me.

    meh. I don't feel this.

    I would have liked to see this landscape. With the '14' centered. It seems rather vertical and so loses the context of the street.


    Straighten. And in an ideal world I would have dragged the shutter a bit.


    Straighten. and I might mess around with the red channel a bit to bring the classic red buses out.

    meh. not feeling it. too much foreground clutter.


    I would have cropped/reframed so the sign in the upper left was gone. It leads the eye out of the frame.


    Meh. Nothing really there, and you clipped the claw.

    That's a strange looking door in London. Where's it belong?

    I like the set, but I have to agree with Jumeira_Johnny about the first few pictures, straightening is a must. I have seen far too many photos overshadowed because the lines just don't look right.

    love a good macro lense. gives really nice depth of field. i am assuming you used one. personaly you should watch out for angles and the foreground clutter. like with the one with the lights it is only a littel bit angled. witch to me looks more like not holding the camera quite strait but like the one with the flowers in looks fine as it is exaggerated. nice photos though

    Some great shots. My abiding memory of London from last time I was there were the little space invader ships graffiti which seemed to crop up in the oddest of places - on the sides of bridges, by hanging basket flowers and so on. London's a great place for trying to spot that kind of stuff. Always look up or down!
